Bike info

- Alloy frame, double pass welds
- Radical geo with adjustable reach and CS length
- 200mm travel front and rear
- Marzocchi Bomber 380 CR fork
- SRAM GX X7 drivetrain
- Powerfull SRAM RE brakes

Main changes for 2018:
- New geometry: slacker, (63 deg), lower BB, CS/RC proportional to FC, new 1.5” headtube
- Marzocchi Bomber 380 CR Fork

The Fuzz has been thrashed and flipped by Sam Pilgrim and it's proved itself in the racing environment too, taking podiums at major DH events worldwide.

 

It's been ridden at the WC and IXS DH Cup by Polish National Champ, Slawek Lukasik and fast boys from the NS Bikes Factory Racing. The geometry is truly modern - it's low, slack, has a tight rear end and a long front triangle. The 4-bar Horst link suspension has a significant amount of rearward axle movement which helps to absorb square faced bumps. There is also a fair amount of anti-squat built into the design to counter pedal-induced bob. The shock, which is the heaviest part of the frame is tucked away near the BB to keep the centre of gravity as low as possible. The frame features adjustable reach thanks to custom headset.
